@fbaezer,
Eleven is just what we need to field a team.

As always, thanks for setting this up Pancho

@lmur,
Nah, Pantalones is the one who suffers.
I'm from the old, pessimistic, generation.

@fbaezer,
My generation is also very pessimistic. Especially with these 23 players, it's World Cup in which I have felt less confident about making it out of the first round.

Now that I think about it I've never felt very optimistic about the Mexican squad. I was only one of my friends that didn't want that game against USA in '02 because I "knew" "we" would lose.

I'm following the match on the Guardian live blog. More crazy officiating (apparently).

Disregard my previous post, after this past game I'm very optimistic.

I thought that I was not going to get emotional but I really got into this game in a way I hadn't experienced since maybe the world cup in '02

@Pantalones,
I was happy when Peralta got a goal, for sure. Another thing about the match (besides the officiating droolers) - mostly done in pouring rain.

How important is the Olympic futbol tournament to the futbol loving countries of the world? I know it doesn't compare to the World Cup, but am unsure about its stature in the eyes of futbol fans.

@InfraBlue,
I read about that yesterday, as in, not much importance - but I already forget why, though I remember it was for some obvious reason. Will post if I see that again or remember. But someone else here will know.

@ossobuco,
It is of not much importance because there is an age cap in te Olympics. Only 3 players in every team can be older than 23 years of age.

Congrats to Mexico who deservedly win despite the best efforts of the officials. Looking forward to their game with Croatia which should be a winner takes all affair.

Luis Suarez does not start today's game versus Costa Rica. Presumably he'll make an appearance if Uruguay encounter problems in breaking CR down.

So suddenly I'm for Bosnia Herzogovina (I saw the youtube video on Dzeko on the guardian blog site). No damned loyalty, she says - I am an emotional fan.
